It might also have to do with the fact that Zoe's sister was a famous and powerful Magical Girl, but we know that Zoe's parents still worried over her and were horrified when Zoe had the Dream when they didn't even realize that she was a girl in the first place.

Having to come out to your parents because Magic literally happened must be kinda weird.

On the other side, ain't no way anybody can deny you're a girl when magic itself just outed you.

[up] Yeah, it's complicated, on one hand magic validates your identity in an "in case you had any doubts, your feelings that you are a girl are correct", on the other, being outed possibly before you are ready... We also don't know what happens physically and (whether if anything happens physically) it is undone when the powers go away at age 18-19.

Just imagine how much of a mind screw it must have been if even Zoe hadn;t figured out her gender identity yet...

But yeah, must be a real unpleasant experience for everyone in the family.

"Mom, Dad, I'm really a girl."

"That's okay, we love you no matter what."

"Also, because of the reason I just told you that I'm now obligated to risk my life every night for the rest of my childhood."

"...Maybe let's ignore that part?"

That seems unnecessarily cruel so I really really do not think Mary would write it that way.

Plus Mary is on record saying she's not going into the physicality of how Zoe's situation works.

Plus, remember how in Eragon everyone cries "a single tear"? Yeah, just try that with One Piece and see if it works

She has gone on record that while magical marks often turn to scars when the power leaves you, Zoe's won't, so she won't go blind in one eye when she loses her powers. So I presume if there are any physical changes, they would stick around after. Yeah there's a lot of dark stuff in the comic, but the magic itself is extremely user-friendly.

It's like EGS: "It's more fun that way."

I like how she covers herself with the hoodie as she admits to it. It's a nice detail.

The fact that she sees that as something to be ashamed of instead of the obvious choice for any newbie to get acclimated is pretty sad. You'd think the school would assign mentors to new girls, or at least help them learn about their powers before going to fight.

It's starting to seem more and more appropriate that a girl falsely accused of being a fake Magical Girl is befriending a girl who may be well see herself as exactly that.

Yeah, it's a pretty bitter irony, isn't it? And one that might well reinforce Rue's distrust of the government. Her parents naturally want her to register because they believe she'll be safer that way; that she'll get the sort of support network she needs, and yet...

...Well, there's Tessa, obviously. And now here's Zoe, who thinks it's shameful that she wasn't throwing herself headlong into battle immediately after getting her powers. Who's standing here apologizing and calling herself cowardly for being cautious. Doesn't exactly offer the best impression, does it?

Rue gives some good advice.

That partnership we've all been predicting seems closer and closer to fruition.

Rue would probably rather face the monster again right now.

Also, this one reminds me, do we know Rue's Magical Girl title yet?

[up][up]I doubt she has one. The title is mostly for marketing purposes, which is a thing that Rue just doesn't do.

People say I have a problem with authority. I say that authority has a problem with me.

If I remember right, Rue has a few ideas of what it could be, but she'll never tell us.

Rue doesn't have a title because they're tools of The Man, maaaaaaaan.

New comic: http://www.sleeplessdomain.com/comic/chapter-13-page-28

Zoe is officially Rue's new best friend.

Also I love the expression on the baby's face. Like "Damn right I don't let her sleep!"
